Zidane praises character of Real Madrid after Sevilla win

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has praised the character of his team after they picked up a crucial 1-0 victory over Sevilla in the latest La Liga outing. Madrid were coming into the game in deep trouble after having suffered a streak of poor results in recent weeks.

The latest match saw the club coming on the back of a two-game losing streak, which started with the shock loss against Deportivo Alaves at the Santiago Bernabeu. This was followed by a 2-0 away defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk. After having made the long travel to Ukraine and back, the expectations were low on Madrid but they produced a lot of character to secure three points from the match.

AlvaroOdriozola keen to repay Zidane’s faith

Zinedine Zidane wanted Alvaro Odriozola to stay with Real Madrid rather than leaving to Bayern Munich on loan. The Spanish footballer has appeared five times for the club in the season before he went to Bayern Munich for loan. He claims that when the talk of loan came Zidane has clearly supported him and was not interested in him leaving. He is also in constant contact with the players, staff and doctors of the club. He is also glad that a personality like Zidane thought of him and gave support to him.

Zinedine Zidane delighted with third-league win on the bounce

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has expressed his delight after Los Blancos registered a third successive league triumph. The Bernabeu giants have experienced another mixed start to the season but they have still remained unbeaten in the Spanish La Liga, where they are currently leading the standings.

Against Osasuna, Zidane chose to go with a young looking midfield and frontline as he opted to ring in the changes but that did not hamper the performance with Junior Vinicius and Rodrygo scoring in a 2-0 triumph. Speaking after the game, Zidane said that he was delighted with the efforts of the young duo but the most important thing was to come out with the win.

Bale To Leave In The Summer

There are some media reports that Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale might be sold during the summer. The player has missed a couple of high profile games for the Spanish side this season and this might be an indication that Real Madrid is looking to play without him in the future. The player has recently missed the game against Malaga despite being fit to play. When asked about the absence of Gareth Bale on the pitch, the Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said that the player was simply rested ahead of some important games in the future.

Ally McCoist believes Paul Pogba would suit Real Madrid

Rangers legend Ally McCoist believes Paul Pogba could pursue a potential move to Real Madrid at the end of the current campaign. The France international has looked far off from the player he was at former club Juventus, with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reluctant to play him in a three-man midfield.


Real Madrid ex-player turned manager Zinedine Zidane has been impressive as the club’s coach since taking over.

The Spanish side are currently on a 31-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, aside winning the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup – by thrashing Sevilla, Europa League winner – and sitting top of the La Liga table, yet Zidane’s praises are not being sung.

Zidane wants patience with Ronaldo

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has asked fans to be patient with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The player sustained an injury in the final game of the Euros and had yet to recover. The player will not be ready for the first game of the season, and Zidane has said that he should be given time.
